The aim of globalization at an institution of higher education should be to provide the intellectual, educational and experiential opportunities for its students, faculty and staff in most aspects of a dynamic global environment. To become active members of international higher education and the community of global citizens, the institution needs to instill in its graduates the abilities, skills, and mindset to be responsible global citizens and effective workers and leaders in the emerging global workplace.

Associate Provost for International Relations, Cronin International Center, Bentley University, Waltham, MA, USA

Dr. Nader Asgary was named Associate Provost for International Relations and Director of the Cronin International Center (CIC) at Bentley University in 2006. In this capacity, he manages all things “international” at Bentley, and he has led many initiatives to enhance the globalization agenda of the University. He was instrumental in applying for and receiving a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Post Secondary Education (FIPSE) to start the first dual-degree program with European institutions. He initiated the Bentley Global Educator’s Workshop, an annual forum which trains faculty from Bentley and other institutions to prepare students to thrive in increasingly globalized economic, social and cultural contexts. He has developed and managed production of Bentley Global Perspectives. The publication, produced annually, addresses all international undertakings and accomplishments at the University. Bentley recently became one of only two institutions of higher learning in the United States to receive EQUIS accreditation, and Dr. Asgary was an integral part of the accreditation process. He also develops relationships with international institutions worldwide, through study abroad programs, faculty research, and other endeavors.
